The application of intelligent imaging techniques to industrial vision problems is an evolving aspect of current machine vision research. Machine vision is a relatively new technology, more concerned with systems engineering than with computer science, and with much to offer the manufacturing industry in terms of improving efficiency, safety and product quality. Beginning with an introductory chapter on the basic concepts, the authors develop these ideas to describe intelligent imaging techniques for use in a new generation of industrial imaging systems. Sections cover the application of AI languages such as Prolog, the use of multi-media interfaces and multi-processor systems, external device control, and colour recognition. The text concludes with a discussion of several case studies that illustrate how intelligent machine vision techniques can be used in industrial applications.

Introductory textbook and a research monograph on modelling the statistical structure of natural images. The statistical structure of natural images is described using a number of statistical models whose parameters are estimated from image samples.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.

The book on computer vision - the construction of explicit, meaningful descriptions of physical objects from images. Parts of the book assume some mathematical and computing background, but mainly mathematical rigor takes a backseat to concepts.
by Kokichi Sugihara - The MIT Press
The book on computer vision which solves the problem of the interpretation of line drawings and answers many other questions regarding the errors in the placement of lines in the images. Sugihara presents a mechanism that mimics human perception.
